The Ellis Act re-subjects to rent control units that are taken off the market under the Act but then are re-rented within five years thereafter.  (Gov. Code 7060.2(d).)  That provision prevails over Civ. Code 1954.52 which exempts separately alienable single family dwellings or units from rent control.  So, the landlord did not evade rent control by withdrawing five units on four parcels from the market, demolishing them, and then building and renting four single family houses, each on its own parcel, hence alienable.  Rent control still applied to the new houses since they were offered for rent within five years after the five units were withdrawn.
